New York Knicks (27-48) at 76ers (43-30)
Wednesday at 7 p.m., at the Wells Fargo Center
The 76ers will look to extend their winning streak to at least eight games for the first time since winning nine on Feb. 12 through March 2, 2003. That team concluded the season by losing to the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference semifinals. As 12 1/2-point favorites over the Knicks, they’re expected to match that winning streak.
